Brickworks of Ipswich, ceramics industry, Patrick Buckridge


Patrick Buckridge was my teacher when I was an undergraduate student at Griffith University. One year, curator Susan Ostling asked him whether any students were  interested in local history research. I volunteered, and Patrick agreed to assess the historical report that I produced. My task was to research and compile, as comprehensively as I could in the time available, a history of the ceramics industry in Ipswich.
